Oh right. So you can see/access your files via the webinterface, but not using samba? You are talking about Safari, is it possible that you only have Apple clients? In that case it might be some auto configuration problem. Network devices which are (designed to be) used in combination with Apple products (almost?) always run an Avahi
daemon, to make it automatically accessible.
I must admit that I don't know how it looks at the client side. Never touched an Apple. When you say 'nothing on my home network can read the NAS drive
' do you mean it doesn't show up automagically, or is the NAS also inaccessible when you enter IP addresses and such?
